I know, I know....

I have simply been going through some "stuff". This past weekend, it was just getting used to having my hubby back home with us - YEAH!!

But there is another thing, something I don't really want to discuss quite yet. I will, eventually. For now, it is just tumbling around in my brain ~ it actually kinda hurts, and I need to deal with it a bit before sharing it. It was even hard for me to share it with Dean. I have felt so out-of-control, and frankly, so mad. Now that God is beginning to show me how HE wants me to deal with this, well, I can just begin to feel a spark of hope....maybe....

In the meantime, please, continue with your "Challenge". I have just complied everyone's info and I have a surprise for you all. Keep up your determination, looking to God first and foremost, even before the experts and the books, the charts and the "scientific facts". Let us be hungry for HIM!!

On another note, I just finished reading When You Rise Up: A Covenantal Approach to Homeschooling by R.C. Sproul. Yes, it makes some mighty strong statements. I have it sitting next to our toilet (hey, that's where I get most of my reading done, it seems) and I'm hoping my dh will read through parts of it and give me his opinion. If nothing else, it really encouraged me that YES, we are doing what God desires in this area. Yes, children are a blessing. Yes, Deut. 6 (and the WHOLE Bible) is TRUTH!! Thank you God for the blessings you have given to Dean and I - they are simply amazing!!

Ok, I have more to say, but the baby is fussing.

God Bless you~

I've been missing you! = ) I have been attempting on in my little six-week challenge, although with the crazy life I lead, it is tough at times. At least I have been sticking to my 7am rule, and more water! I'll post about my successes and failures soon. ~Cassandra

I made the mistake of loaning When You Rise Up to a friend. I thought it was a good book, but my friend did a web search on R.C. Sproul Jr's name and what a surprise that turned out to be! I didn't know that he'd been defrocked, and he was defrocked over some really bad stuff. I won't recommend his book again to anyone else. Too much risk of causing confusion with my friends that I'm trying to talk in to homeschooling. There are better books by people who haven't been defrocked.
